I just LOVE guitars. I have guitars from a number of well known manufacturers. I have some duplication in the collection but I like the small differences between the guitars that are a bit of a duplicate. I have solid body, semi-hollow body and hollow body guitars. I like them all for the things they bring to the table that are different. I have more PRS guitars than any other brand. I just find them very sexy looking and above the rest in playability and tone. I do have some others that I consider right up there with them but really love my PRS guitars.I go through streaks sometimes, too.
But I wasn't this streaky with my WL 594s, WL McCartys, or Special Semi-Hollow Artist. They were winners, though I didn't keep them. Truth is, it's hard for a guitar to compare to my PS models favorably, and except for the Special, the McCartys and 594s were too similar to the tones I already had with the McCarty SC.
This one's getting much, much more play time than the other WLs did, probably because it's SO different. I'm really surprised. I figured the DGT would be a niche thing. I was wrong. It's a real bread-and-butter guitar.
As Grissom said in a video demo, "It just works." Maybe that's enough? Because I have no other idea why.
Re: collections...I'm not much of a collector. I only have four electric guitars. They're good ones, but if that's a collection it's an awfully insignificant one.
Yet I feel satisfied.
My collection is in the low to mid 30 range. A little over 1/3 of them are PRS guitars. I don't own any CE, S2 or SE models. I don't have a PS but have always wanted one. I just couldn't see spending the money to have something custom built that would essentially be a duplicate of a PRS I already have. I do have one idea for a PS that would be cool for me but the cost now is high enough that I struggle with it. If I had a PS built years ago, I would more than likely ended up with something that was a duplicate of a core I already had and I am not sure that is a recipe to love the new PS. The one I would build now would be very different than any I have now.
